    • Synopsis
    • Evridika (14) lives together with her mother Sona (36) in small Armenian town Alaverdi. Sona is conductor of a world famous choir consisting of 15 men so most of the time she is on tour away from home. Evridika feels neglected and lonely accompanied only by her devices – phone and notebook. She is examining world around through the lens of her video camera and lives in her own virtual world created on her web page at suicidal community. She detests her own name and her greatest wish is to change it. Evridika is desperately looking for answers to the questions posed by her blossoming sexuality. What are Love and Lust? What are Life and Death? Who is her father? Her mother had never answered all these questions. Each day Evridika drowns deeper inside herself and sees no reasons to live until once she meets Pyotr (37). Pyotr is Sona’s ex-lover and years ago they had a passionate love story and his reappearance wakes up Sona’s feelings and becomes the key point to transformation of Evridika's perception of the world.
